I just worked around this using JAXP by creating a dummy document 
of the right type and then reading it in.

This restriction is probably a limitation because:

http://www.w3.org/TR/2000/PR-DOM-Level-2-Core-20000927/core.html#i-Document
interface Document : Node {
  readonly attribute DocumentType     doctype;
[...]

So it would appear that DOM Level 2 doesn't expect anyone to create
an XML document using DOM, just to read and modify it...

all the best, Don
